EDUCATION BLUEPRINT RESONATES SUCCESS IN EVERY LEVEL OF EDUCATION
23 AUGUST, 2023
Institut Masa Depan Malaysia (MASA) stands in resounding applause as we celebrate a decade of triumph with the Malaysia Education Blueprint 2013-2025. The Ministry of Education’s (MOE) 2022 Annual Report launched yesterday (22 August, 2023), imbues the resounding success of the blueprint since its implementation in 2013.
The journey chronicled within the latest annual report and Gallery Walk powerfully exemplifies the tenacity and sustainable innovation in overcoming all forms of hurdles and challenges. As we review each annual report from 2013 to 2022, it becomes evident that these years encapsulate a decade of profound lessons learned since the blueprint’s visionary launch by former Education Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, on September 6, 2013.
During the launch, Tan Sri Muhyiddin had described the blueprint as the most comprehensive and biggest manifestation of government transformation in getting the best returns in human capital to drive all national development aspirations.
MASA commends the unwavering commitment and cooperation of diverse stakeholders, including communities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and corporate entities, who have been instrumental in the transformation of the country’s education. The highest accolade should go to the educational community within the ministry, education departments and schools throughout the country. Their collective contributions have, undoubtedly, fortified the blueprint’s overall success.
In this celebratory moment, we must not forget the fundamental role played by Tan Sri Muhyiddin who is also the 8th Prime Minister of Malaysia. Serving as the then Minister of Education from 2009 to 2015, his visionary leadership is displayed through the setting up of the groundwork for this transformative education action plan. Clearly, Tan Sri Muhyiddin’s dedication and commitment has paved the way for the comprehensive blueprint that has yielded transformative results over the past decade.
The 2022 Annual Report, launched by Education Minister, Fadhlina Sidek, at the Raja Tun Uda Library in Shah Alam, Selangor, portrays the blueprint’s achievements through its implemented initiatives. This comprehensive report showcases a myriad of accomplishments, from elevating student performance and refining teacher training to seamlessly integrating technology in classrooms. The impact of the blueprint resonates through every aspect of education at all levels.
The blueprint has heralded a visionary path for the nation, addressing accessibility, quality, equity, unity and efficiency in education. This transformational plan has set a bold trajectory for Malaysia’s education sector, shaping a brighter future for generations to come.
As we go into 2023 and beyond, MASA remains dedicated to nurturing the legacy of progress ignited by Tan Sri Muhyiddin’s leadership. By fostering continued collaboration and innovation, we are confident that the foundation laid by Tan Sri Muhyiddin will lead us towards a more promising and impactful educational landscape.
